Venus in Virgo : “Discriminating Love”

Venus Face - Frame 0 (1)

 

“Everything keeps its best nature only by being put to its best use.” – Phillips Brooks

As we explore the method that’s Venus in Virgo, we do so with the understanding that Venus can’t be reduced or limited exclusively to “love” in one’s birth chart. There are far more associations which accompany the planet. However, for the purpose of this particular article, one’s idea of love, as viewed through the Venus in Virgo lens, will be emphasized.

For those with Venus placed in Virgo in the natal chart, Love is utilitarian. Love is continuous improvement. Love is pragmatic.  Love is service. Love is efficiency. Love is careful and continuous analysis. Love is health. Love is selective and discriminating. Love is paying attention.

With this arrangement, love needs are sought to be fulfilled in an environment which calls for the use of one’s faculties of discernment. While Virgo’s complementary sign, Pisces, is geared toward merging and unification, the Virgin’s direction consists of recognition and understanding of the difference between on thing and another.

For Venus in Virgo individuals “relationship competence” is of utmost importance, as a healthy developmental direction to which to proceed in puts emphasis on doing whatever is required to make relationships the best that they can be and operate in a healthy manner. These actions include picking the relationship apart, examining each facet thoroughly and determining its overall usefulness. As time goes on, the conclusions that one draws about what’s helpful and necessary for their partnerships will most likely change as a matter of principle and as an indicator of striving toward excellence.

One’s growth is naturally enveloped in the process of employing sound judgment in partnerships, and using these same unions as a vehicle for one’s own refinement and the betterment of the partner. Ideally, one’s relationships should work efficiently, like a well-oiled machine.

When placed in action, Venus in Virgo correlates well with the love language that Gary Chapman refers to as “Acts of Service” in his bestselling book “The 5 Love Languages”.

“Acts of service” consists of doing things that you know that your partner would want you to do or appreciate; seeking to please her or him by serving them. One would naturally know what their partner wanted after careful listening, analysis and observation which are all mercurial functions that are “at home” with the sign Virgo.

Also, as Chapman emphasizes, these acts of service would require thought, planning, time, effort and energy and if they’re done with a positive spirit, they would be expressions of love.

In regard to this placement “discrimination” is a key phrase. And, depending on our life circumstances, we may have only been exposed to the negative connotations associated with this term, which deal with the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people or things, especially on the grounds of race, age, gender or sexual orientation.

However, there’s another side to discrimination which indicates one’s ability to choose and make distinctions with care. Refinement of this faculty will most certainly be connected to one’s ability to maintain and execute relationships in a healthy and functional manner.

Potential challenge areas emerge for individuals with Venus in Virgo when their analysis goes too far, in that they attempt to answer every question: past, present and future – in order to account for every possible scenario without taking the actual plunge with their feelings in relationships. In essence, an self-inflicted paralysis and a robbing oneself of the right to possibly experience the love and relationship that you deserve.

Astrologer Jeffrey Wolf Green elaborates on this:

“Venus in Virgo people are plagued by a deep sense of inner doubt which is caused not only by the desire to deflate their egos, but also by the excessive inner analysis that creates a diversity of competing thoughts and perspectives. In turn, this can lead to an inner paralysis of their ability to take action as necessary. When these individuals consider some new project, or some new direction, or some new strategy leading to self-improvement, they will make these new ways seem so big and complicated that it reinforces their sense of personal inadequacy. Thus, they can defeat themselves before they even start. The way out of this self-defeating dynamic is to realize that the path to perfection, self-improvement, or the actualization of their abilities occurs one step at a time”

An important lesson for you to learn is: as efficient as you may be, there are no guarantees. You must take the initial steps involved in risk taking, and when you find yourself in the midst of a relationship, you must wholeheartedly INVOLVE yourself as opposed to consciously distancing yourself and playing the role of “remote tinkering technician”.

Also, it’s essential to understand that the same time and care that one puts in dissecting the relationship must be invested in considering the feelings of one’s partner. People aren’t “projects” and using your aforementioned powers of discrimination, to make the fine distinction between the two will benefit you greatly in the long run.

Understand that the pursuit of the ideal in relationships is both a natural and honorable inclination for you. To relinquish the belief that these aspirations must be accompanied by the excessive criticism of yourself and others, or that to be content and satisfied with what you have is accepting mediocrity is to invest in the breaking your own psychological and emotional chains.

Sagittarius Sun, Virgo Moon : “Don’t Sweat the Technique”

Delta Commission Face Circle

The practical application of knowledge and the efficient use of your philosophical understanding are two areas of irrefutable importance in your life. One of the largest questions for you becomes: “How can I make the best of what I have?”

When releasing your arrows of thought into the universe, having a precise direction or location is something that has the potential to benefit you greatly.

While the desire to see the big picture fuels your lifeblood, there is also a need to pick things apart and get down to the minutiae. Always asking what life is all about in the larger sense, while simultaneously figuring out how to refine its processes, and combining your insights and offering them as service to humanity.

To know that you’re making a difference strikes a major chord in your psyche. You’re rewarded by the feeling of catapulting yourself into a situation where throughout the process, there are obvious signs of continuous improvement. On the flip side, if you’re operating dysfunctionally, you may be inclined to shout a sermon from the rooftops on everything that’s “wrong” with someONE or something both morally and structurally.

” And now, I stay on target and refuse to miss”. 

Those words were uttered by the legendary Rakim, in your theme song: “Don’t Sweat the Technique”

Developmental Lessons For Virgo : “Discrimination”

calculator-clipboard-coffee-cup-1001763

“The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non essentials.”

-Lin Yutang

It’s amazing how much “stuff” is out there.

Just by logging on to any computer, or checking our e-mail we can open up the floodgates and it can be quite overwhelming. Not to mention a headache. Most of us want information that we can use. Unfortunately, a lot of what we encounter is not of the practical variety.

One of Virgo’s most important life tasks is becoming adept at the art of discrimination. Mastering the ability to analyze information, or enter into any situation and become an efficiency expert. Separating what’s truly important and useful from that which is fluff.  Identifying “the real McCoy” and minimizing  exposure to the world of trivia. Virgo’s have a tremendous capacity to improve whatever they come into contact with. By employing their powers of razor sharp critical thinking, they can show us all how to be better in all of our pursuits.

When sculptors produce their statues, they must first chip away at all of the marble that’s not needed. In time, they may create a masterpiece.

Virgo: Chip away at the trivial, unnecessary and non-essential. The personal sculpture you create will serve as your contribution to life.

Developmental Lessons for Virgo: “Correct Techniques”

Turquoise Purple Circle

” A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault.” – John Henry Newman

When the Sun’s passage through Leo is officially over, and the warmth and radiation of the limelight gives way to Virgo’s claim, We immerse ourselves in the harvest.

Like the energy which surrounds the Virgin, this time is ripe with certainty, but minimal fanfare. Virgo presents an offering of humility in order to balance the elements of the ego, which are ever-present in the previous sign, Leo. On a collective level, the process of order and refinement of the personality is necessary.

The Symbolism

Let’s deal with first things first.

We must address the notion that the Virgin, which symbolizes Virgo, is some holy rolling, chasteanal-retentive prude who scoffs at rings on their glass tables because of no coasters. Somehow, astrological writing has regressed to lower Virgo down to a habitual dust buster and lint picker of the celestial variety.

When something is in its virgin state, it’s pure and natural. It hasn’t been tampered with. It’s unexplored, uncultivated, in its raw form.  This can certainly apply to sexual intercourse, but our beings encompass such a vast variety of possibilities than just this one act.

Virginity ultimately symbolizes someone or something seeking to happen to the world for the first time.

So many choices and options minus the infiltration from society. A tabula rasa seeking experience.

Some of you reading this passage are 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 years old.

This in no way means that you cannot continuously keep happening to the universe. Whatever you are doing, every time has the potential to be as if it’s your first.

Whether it’s physical, spiritual, emotional or psychological, your virginity is something that you can perpetually renew and reclaim.

The Virgo Curriculum

A significant part of Virgo’s life purpose is that of using one’s powers of discrimination to separate the true from the false and promote overall health of body, mind and spirit via the process of analysis.

The ultimate goal is more efficient functioning in whatever area you decide to employ your powers.

This process starts within and lasts a lifetime.

The advanced portion of the Virgo curriculum consists of refining and perfecting parts of themselves which they can ultimately offer up as gifts and service on an individual and a collective level. 

How well Virgo is able to perform this task is directly related to how highly their faculties of intellectual separation are activated in order to discern the beneficial from the detrimental.

The Virgo Toolbox

When viewing the whole and dissecting the parts via the intellect, Virgo has no equal. They may be rivaled by Scorpio in their ability to analyze with a fine tooth comb, but we’re talking about two different methods here. While Scorpio applies their instinctual, gut level knowledge, Virgo primarily relies on its mental faculties and acute powers of observation leaving no stone unturned.

The potential to develop an orderly mind and life is certainly available to the Virgin if they’re willing to put in the work to realize and harness these powers.

In addition, Virgo potential lies in have the uncanny ability to assess a situation, serving as a cosmic “efficiency expert” and immediately making it better. To natives of this Sun sign (and other personal planets) to serve is not demeaning, rather it’s the highest form of ingenuity bestowed upon the individual or group of their choices. More than anything, Virgo wants to be useful.

The Virgo Trash Can

What can Virgo afford to throw away?

over analysis and the tendency to “fix” others.

The maxim: “over analysis leads to paralysis” must have been coined for Virgo. Every gift is a curse in equal proportion, as the keen talent for critical thinking, when unchecked, can prove to be enormously stultifying to their ability to take action. 

One of the most important evolutionary lessons for Virgo is: conditions are what you make them. There is no such thing as a perfect time to do anything.

In regard to the low-end Virgo tendency to try to fix others, the virgin must be clear on what they mean by the statement: “he/she has potential.”

An appropriate question may be: does this “potential” consist of becoming a higher quality and more integrated version of what they already are? Or, a carefully calculated hodge-podge of assigned traits which will enhance my selfish motives? Thereby leading to a counterfeit psychological satisfaction.

For a more elaborate illustration I suggest viewing the film “The Shape of Things” starring Paul Rudd and Rachel Weisz.

A Brief Word on Virgo’s and Relationships

When Virgo energy is operating at its highest in the sphere of intimate relationships, there’s unlimited potential.  Loyalty, practical gestures of kindness, and unwavering support are commonplace themes.

The need to somehow pick the other person apart and build another version to suit each other’s liking is severely minimized. The individuals involved have devised a system which fosters the pursuit of collective excellence rather than a pie in the sky, illusory perfection.

What concerns them most is that they’re “perfect” for each other. They have learned the art of successful navigation, accepting their own shortcomings, while allowing their partner the space to find a healthy spot to let their imperfections breathe.

I will leave you with a quote by an unknown author which I hope serves you well:

“No one is perfect. That’s why pencils have erasers.”                

 

Virgo Sun, Sagittarius Moon

African Seal 10

If the Virgo Sun/Sagittarius Moon combination could be broken down into items, Virgo would be a microscope, while Sagittarius would be a wide lens telescope.

Virgo would analyze the debris sitting within immediate reach, while the archer would have its gaze firmly set upon a distant horizon. The fusion of these two types of energies provides a narrative which speaks to our multivaried options of how we wish to experience our respective worlds.

In a birth chart, when the Sun is in Virgo and the Moon is in Sagittarius, the fundamental energy which stimulates this individual is one of improving life processes through constant analysis, refinement and correction. Make no mistake about it, Virgo wants to use its systematic wiles in service of being “right and exact”.

The propensity of this solar placement is to view the world in relation to how it can immediately be made better. One of the psychological needs of Virgo is to enrich whatever situation, relationship or process that they become a part of. The perfection of skill and technique to be offered as a valuable contribution to humanity is what’s ultimately sought. More than anything, Virgo wants to be useful.

The Sagittarius Moon utilizes the Virgo Sun’s light to reflect a personality which needs to grasp the most all-encompassing worldview possible. This placement suggests that the individual is nourished through physical and mental exploration. This activity can take the form of studying how the laws of the universe and cosmos operate to provide the cords that bind us all or trekking halfway across the globe to experience culture shock.

After some of these experiences have been digested and internalized, the Sagittarius Moon individual needs to have its observations and opinions respected on how they view the grand design that we call life:

“The distant horizon is always felt as more appealing than the here and now. They particularly need mentall freedom [including religious and spiritual room to improve themselves] since their aspirations are not just high, but boundless.”

“In fact, they want to say yes to every opportunity; they want to feel that life is unbounded by any limits , and so they tend to instinctively promise far more than they can ever deliver.” 

I’m a  firm believer that we can learn valuable and insightful lessons from every sign in the zodiac when the entire system is viewed as a continuum or a progression. I also think that the energies contained in our birth charts are begging for our utilization of them.

The Sun  in Virgo needs to use the Sagittarius Moon in order to highlight the large scale possibilities in this world. As not to get snared in the “overanalysis leads to paralysis” trap, better known as the obsessive-compulsive style of the overfunctioning Virgo.

Robert Shapiro states:

“When the obsessive-compulsive person is unable to reach a decision by formula or rule, (s)he may begin to stew. S(he) will struggle to find the “right” solution. S(he) will tax him (her)self to think about it.

But the obsessive-compulsive person’s stewing has very little in common with the normal person’s thinking over the relevant facts. In the course of his(her) stewing, the obsessive person will continue long after he(she) has worn out the relevant facts and exhausted any possibility of new understanding from them. (S)he will have combined them in alll of their possible combinations and done so many times.

(S)he has, in other words tried to deal with the problem of decision according to his(her) style. (S)he tries to deal with it as if it were the most taxing technical problem- the search for the “right” answer. But most of the time this search is bound to fail.

There is no “right” answer in this sense, in the sense that there is a right answer to a technical problem. The decision, as much as s(he) shrinks from the fact, comes to a choice, a preference.”

Conversely, the Sagittarius Moon stands to benefit from the Virgo Sun’s potential for attention to detail and pragmatic focus.

There can be significant gains in the area of practical application of knowledge and understanding. Bringing high-minded ideals down to everyday life so that they don’t just remain ivory tower theory, but rather subject themselves to be tested by reality.

In this manner, the lifetime journey is full of options. Both the forest and the trees are available as well as the long range view and the immediate details. The wide eyed wonder associated with the Sagittarian quest is grounded by Virgoan utility without the obsessive after taste that’s common as a result of attempting to compulsively control events and outcomes.

THIS is a win-win.

Cancer Sun, Virgo Moon : The Helping Hand

black-and-white-dark-desperate-167964

Healing and helping.

These are two words and concepts which are no stranger to your vocabulary.

Emotional connections ignite your life force, and you have the potential of being able to offer warmth and tenderness with precision; in the EXACT manner required for the moment.

You can not only be considered a useful person, but also a trusted confidant.

When you help make situations better, your work is evident by the reactions of others and how they rave about the many positive changes in their lives- all because of you.

What you seek is the “soft spot” in others in order to support them in the most efficient manner possible. To soothe the heart and feed the intellect.

However, one of the questions that this combination produces is: with all of this service to humanity, how do I navigate my own self-care?

Virgo Sun, Pisces Moon

When a Virgo Sun and a Pisces Moon are combined in an individual birth chart, there’s immense potential for self-improvement and personal refinement via the use of one’s intuition and participation in the intangible realms of life.  The solar/lunar synthesis represents the invisible made visible and the ideal made real.

Very few things are more satisfying than to shape a concept or a dream and then give it physical form so that it manifests with solid physicality. This combination offers that opportunity.

The type of fuel this person requires is discriminating and practical; complete with high octane analytics.  It’s the dissecting of systems or people in service of more efficient operation.

The solar energy is reflected in a lunar personality which has an emotional need to assemble all of the pieces together and bridge any divisions between themselves and the spiritual source from which they originated.

The key to navigating this blend successfully is to shape inspirational and creative ideals into functional form; to not only visualize but to actualize.

A dysfunctional expression of this combination can suggest more dreaming and less doing, or the feeling that inspiration, without perspiration or preparation will be enough.

It’s important for natives with this blend to understand that floating on feelings of utopian bliss can only take you a portion of the distance you need to go to engineer your visions. If nothing more is done, you may be chasing castles in the sky or living in a fool’s paradise.

Conversely, the portals that contain the fluid and boundless flow of intuition must be kept open and not overly stifled via the allowance of the hyper-logical, or the straitjacket of conceptual incarceration,  into one’s creative realm.

Virgo Sun, Leo Moon, Cancer Rising

 beautiful-fashion-female-1214304
Within the combination of a Virgo Sun, Leo Moon and Cancer rising, the basic energy which stimulates the individual is that which comes with the process of refinement, analysis and self-improvement. Employing the skills of discernment in service of a greater ideal. Making an assessment of how parts may work together to keep themselves and others running more efficiently.
There’s a tendency to put energy towards making everyone and everything better and perfect a part of themselves and offer that as service to humanity. The Virgo Sun’s fuel is used by the Leo Moon to give form to a personality which needs to be appreciated, adored and admired. Someone who’s nourished by being seen as special and unique.  There’s an emotional need to have the core identity validated.In order  for this person to be truly fulfilled, The expression of creative talents must be an extension of this identity.

 

The world is seen through the filtering of the Cancer Ascendant: the sensitive, poetic and self-protective eyes of a nurturer.

This placement suggests a highly intuitive nature which is easily able to tap into emotional undercurrents and size up the general “vibe” of situations without a staunch and logic analysis.

Cancer rising is also capable of offering the purest form of warmth, feeling connection and listening response . However, it’s extremely vital to distinguish your feelings from those of others which whom you come into contact.

Dysfunction can occur when there’s an almost obsessive drive to meet the  emotional needs of others used solely as an escape from acknowledging the depth of your own.

Opposite Signs in the Birth Chart : The Call For Integration

Image

“I’m a True Sagittarius !” “I’m all Gemini, and proud of it !” I’m the epitome of a Scorpio !”

If you ask most Astrologers, chances are that they’ve heard statements similar to these a countless number of times.

So, what do these declarations really mean?

If I had to guess, I would say that people tend to identify very strongly with the characteristics which are representative of their sun signs. Of course, those of us who have had our charts done know that it’s impossible to be “all” or 100% of any sign. And, to take this statement a little further, you probably wouldn’t want to be. 

I know that this may sound particularly peculiar coming from someone who has titled his blog “Sagittarian Mind”. However, I’m discovering that some of us are really ‘missing the boat’ in failing to grasp the inherent gifts contained in the totality of our charts. Especially our opposite or complementary signs, which add a considerable amount of balance and “fill in the blanks.”

As Piero Ferrci stated in his book “What We may Be” :

” People identified with one pole may be rich in the quality of the opposite one but repress it, and consciously devalue it.”

If we’re truly striving to become integrated human beings, this line of thinking is worthy of serious consideration. Here’s how I have applied this idea to the twelve signs of the zodiac:

In Aries, we have the initiator, leader and pioneer. The Ram suggests aspirations of an assertive “go-getter” who spearheads projects and delegates to others with the aim of successful completion. Aries can call on it’s opposite sign’s (Libra) qualities of instituting teamwork, cooperation and maintaining harmony to make this happen.

In Taurus,  there’s the energy which suggests consistency and stability. The builder and conservative who is reserved in expression, yet solid as a rock. Patient and practical with a great deal of common sense. However, he or she knows that they cannot remain in the same rigid pattern which produces inertia. Taurus can call on it’s opposite sign, Scorpio for depth perception and the capacity to transform through elimination of people, places and objects that have reached their expiration date and no longer contribute to self-empowerment.

In Gemini, we have the versatile ‘jack of all trades who is driven by a compulsive need to gather information. Here we have the reporter, journalist and social butterfly. The twins are curious, witty and highly intelligent. However, Gemini can call on it’s opposite sign of Sagittarius to teach them the difference between information and knowledge. To point Gemini towards a larger understanding and context in which to place the many details they’ve acquired.

In Cancer, we have the sensitive nurturer who takes care of family and fiercely protects their loved ones. Fortified by the world of emotions and imagination, Cancer can call on it’s opposite sign of Capricorn to educate them on the process of exposing themselves to the world of feelings, yet not becoming engulfed in them. In turn, this tutoring will allow Cancer to help others help themselves. Tenderly, yet objectively pointing then to the road of self-sufficiency.

In Leo, we have the charismatic, self-expressive hero. Generous in sharing time and energy with others, the Lion and Lioness radiate as they feel the power of their individuality surging through their veins.Leo’s opposite sign of Aquarius can teach that these ensigns weren’t just granted for personal use, but for the good of the collective and humanity in general. The Water Bearer can show the Lion how to make the stage large enough to accommodate all.

In Virgo, we have the critical thinker. Analytical, discriminating and precise with TWO eyes for detail.

Virgo’s opposite sign of Pisces can introduce the value of listening to intuition and resisting the urge to deconstruct people and situations with cold, hard facts. Pisces says to Virgo :” I.Q. is great, but E.Q. is equally valid.”

In Libra, we have the diplomat. Charming, peaceful and tactful. Able to navigate virtually any social situation with grace,the scales have an entire etiquette class stored in their brain.

Libra’s opposite sign of Aries grabs them off the proverbial “fence” that they’ve been riding all night and shows the scales how to make their wishes known and start a sentence with “I”.

In Scorpio, we have the probing, investigating depth psychologist. The scorpion’s breakfast consists of passion pancakes and intensity tea. Their ability to get to the bottom of people and situations is second to none.

However, the opposite sign of Taurus can teach the scorpion that maybe your next door neighbor didn’t mean anything else than “good morning.” The bull can bring stability to Scorpio and ease it’s emotional turbulence by providing the grounding of the earth.

ISagittarius, we have knowledge, wisdom and understanding. The philosopher, teacher and metaphysician. Questing, traveling and seeking. Sagittarians know that “foreign exchange” isn’t just trading in your U.S. Dollars for Euros, rather it’s the exchanging of thoughts and ideas regarding concepts which were essentially “foreign” before you became exposed to them. Sagittarius’ opposite sign of Gemini can help the archer keep it’s facts straight and accurate. The twins can help Sagittarians, who have a penchant for overlooking details, to keep their ducks in a row. Gemini says to Sag: “Don’t forget to double check the math in that checkbook register !Remember, we still have a week to go on this trip!”

In Capricorn, we have the CEO, the achiever and the producer. Caps are In the office sipping on coffee at 6 am reading the Wall Street Journal in their traditional dark blue suits. A master at delaying short-term gratification in exchange for long term value, the goat has reached success through self-discipline and becoming his own inner authority. Capricorn’s opposite sign of Cancer teaches how to tenderly give of themselves and protect others in a sensitive way without relinquishing their title. Only adding another dimension towards their wholeness.

In Aquarius, we have the activist, revolutionary and the rebel. Willing to fight with”the people” for a common cause. Although relating to individuals on somewhat of an impersonal level, the water bearer is a true friend to humanity. Aquarius’ opposite sign of Leo can teach him that sometimes you have to be your own best friend. Also, it’s okay to let your light shine above the crowd every now and then. Leo says: It’s okay to lend your talents to the collective, but you have to be able to embark on a repo mission at any time to take your skills back for personal use !

In Pisces, we have the creative musician, imaginative artist and the compassionate healer. The fish have the capacity to travel the invisible realms of life and return with a full report. Pisces realizes that were all bound together by cords. That all manifestations of life are spiritual in nature, and that term must be broadened and a wider net must be cast. Virgo, the opposite sign of Pisces can teach the fish the value of rational analysis and provide the much needed filters of discrimination. Virgo says to Pisces: the expression of spirituality and intuitive faculty does not excuse us from having to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Pisces Sun, Virgo Moon

The blend of a Pisces Sun and Virgo Moon consists of the individuals core life energy being directed toward  working with the invisible and intangible elements of life.

The sun’s placement suggests that the person is stimulated by an orientation to their inner world which consists of all things symbolic. Music, art,myths, dreams, films, etc.. pervade the consciousness in hopes that they may be expressed through some creative and artistic form.

The Virgo Moon uses the Pisces sun’s light to reflect a personality which needs to give practical manifestation to these ethereal concepts. There’s an emotional requirement to be exacting, proper and correct about how these particular energies are applied into the world.

This blend symbolizes the no- nonsense metaphysician who is able, through using the Virgoan skills of analysis and discrimination, to make otherwise nebulous concepts, pragmatic and workable in the real world.
